Posted: 22nd Aug 2019

Are you looking for a way to create an expensive looking piece of furniture, without having to pay a crazy amount?

Well, DIY dipped legs could be the way to go! They're a super effective way of giving your furniture a stand-out look. That's where this project comes in. It explains how you can create some fun effects by using Rust-Oleum Glitter Ultra Shimer! There's no need to stop there either - you can go even further and pair the glitter dipped legs with a glitter wall or a cool, upcycled glitter lamp - say hello to some shimmering style!

You will need:

Rust-Oleum Glitter Ultra Shimmer
Paint brush
Masking tape
Paint stirrer
Paint tin opener


1. Having removed the legs from the table, carefully mask each of the legs, ensuring there are no gaps in the table.

2. Take your can of Rust-Oleum Glitter Ultra Shimmer and stir thoroughly, ensuring any glitter that may have settled at the bottom of the can is fully mixed. Using a paintbrush, apply the paint and leave it to dry. You could need as many as three coats.

3. Peel away the masking tape to reveal your sparkly design! It's then time to reattach them to the table.
